About Saint Joseph Catholic School

St. Joseph School is a vibrant, Catholic community for students in grades K-8. The U.S. Department of Education has named St. Joseph School a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, the highest honor a school can receive.  

The school enriches its core curriculum with Spanish classes for all grades, art taught by a certified art teacher, comprehensive music program, band for grades 5-8, physical education, a complete sports program, Christmas and spring concerts, and an annual play. Supported by a state-of-the-art computer lab, technology is integrated in all subject areas.  

 A dedicated, committed, and caring administration,  faculty, and staff are essential to the success of the  school. In order to help all students reach their full  potential, St. Joseph School provides extensive tutoring,  language and speech development, and counseling  and psychological services. 

St. Joseph School actively involves the parent, the first educators of their children,  as co-partners in the mission of our school. By living and modeling the mission of the school, the faculty and  staff are supported by faith-centered families who share the same ideals prepare the students of St. Joseph School for success both in the classroom and as citizens of the world.  

The mission of St. Joseph School is to proclaim the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, and to help the students apply the Gospel message in their daily lives while growing in knowledge and serving others.

We believe all children can learn and should be taught in a safe learning environment. 

We believe that all children should be given the opportunity to be taught with a variety of instructional approaches to support their learning and to empower children to become confident, life-long learners. 

We believe students need to apply their learning in meaningful contexts. 

We believe a student’s self-esteem is enhanced by positive relationships and mutual respect among and between students and staff. 

We believe parents are the first educators of their children; however, parents, teachers, administrators, and the Church community share the responsibility for preparing the children to be productive members of the Catholic Church and society.
